What should decorators keep in mind when setting up a dedicated space to do business?

Setting up a place for your business is essential for your success. Typically, when something such as sublimation has been a hobby, there is already a space being used, but is that space a dedicated area for your business?

When thinking about setting up a shop, think about how much space you will need for your equipment and overall setup. There are many advantages to running a business from home including flexibility or setting your own hours, saving gas money, no “rent,” and no wasted travel time. However, being successful in a home office environment requires discipline and preferably a space that can be closed off when not in use. Though you don’t travel to the office per se, you need a space to go to and leave from work. You may also want to take into consideration leasing a commercial space as you outgrow the area in your home.
